Can anybody point me in a northerly direction?


Does this mean winter is almost over?

   We just had large numbers of Robins return last week if that is an indicator. Need to check with my neighbor to see if his white one is back. It has been around 3-4 years as of last Spring.

Winter not finished with us just yet.
All the birds are having a tough time since the late season storm this past week.

I guess it is in a round bout way everywhere. Sometimes I guess we are too hospitable as the migratory birds fly in a big circle. No they are not buzzards.

North is where ever the gps says it is. To young people anyway.

Darrel;
Nice photo.
Those geese heading my way?
Good news, but tell 'em to take the long way home.
It's still snow covered and frozen up here.   ;)

There had been Canadian geese going over all day, but this particular flock I believe we're snow geese. They had a higher pitched call and had white wing tips. Maybe someone a little more up on geese could chime in.

The illegal immigrants are getting creative.:D We are seeing them but they have few places to land, a lot of the lakes are still iced over.

Because  it's got more geese.  ;D

Rjwoelk they call that a HAY HOOK and when you see them flying that way it is going to get cold again with bad weather.

We don't live on the salt water, but the knik (ka-nik) arm of Cook inlet is only about 10-12 miles as the crow flies (or in my case the ravens).  It will not be spring time till I see or hear the first seagull.  We still have several feet of snow on the ground and the lakes are still frozen hard.  Gonna be at least another month and a half or more before the waterfowl have anywhere to land that aint white and cold.
